I am not the sort of person who generally reads non-fiction, I am not a bird watcher nor am I particularly outdoorsy, yet this book is one that I think back to often as a book that amazed me, and changed my view of the world.
The title is hard to remember and I always garble it and thus have found it hard to recommend it to friends. But now it is here for good, never to be forgotten again. Fabulous read!

I've read books about birds for decades, but I learned quite a bit that I didn't know.
